San Bernardino, California

Not everyone is able to have their own garden, but how about creating a community garden? BRI is partnering with The Lighted Garden Ministry to help them with their mission to create/plant beautiful, sustainable gardens in urban neighborhoods. You will be able to help start this garden and then take the skills to your neighborhood or home and continue the blessing.

This is such a unique and awesome opportunity you won’t want to miss it.
